Well the lights have been dimmed, the boxes and files put away and everyone has returned home. As they say in Hollywood, “It’s in the can”. The 2016 LASD Roundup is over. By all accounts, a great time was had by all. Now for a bit of trivia. How many Moon miles is the Roundup? Well it is exactly 28.79 miles. That is how many miles I put on my PF Flyers. The dates for the 2017 Roundup are April 2, through April 5th, 2017. Our illustrious news reporter, Ralph Williams will again be writing the article for the Star News and I will publish it to the list as soon as it is delivered to me.
This year, the 16th annual LASD Roundup was held again at the Riverside Resort and Casino in Laughlin, Nevada, from March 29 through April 1. A total of 985 retired friends gathered to socialize in the Starview Room, known as “the Briefing Room.” They attended various unit events such as luncheons, dinners and cocktail hours. They participated in activities such as a golf tournament, bowling tournament, arts and crafts fair, poker and slot tournaments, firearms qualification and countless hours of good times.
